Doesn’t that Marcus Jordan layup look familiar? It might be because his father, The G.O.A.T., made the switch right-hand-to-left-hand in mid-air layup famous on a early summer evening during the 1991 NBA Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers. Don’t look now, but the UCF Knights are now 6-0 after upsetting the No. 16 Florida Gators 57-54 behind’s MJ’s (Marcus, not Michael) 18 points, three rebounds and three assists. Compare this move to Mike’s after the jump.
My jaw literally dropped at how high Dwight Howard jumped to block Luol Deng‘s weak layup attempt. Is Superman going to three-peat as the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year?
We told you Blake Griffin was going to have a lot of highlights this season! About five minutes into his official NBA debut, Blake had already threw down two MONSTER dunks against the Trail Blazers. He finished with 20 and 14, and I think it’s safe to deem Kanye West‘s “Monster” as Blake’s official theme song.
Yesterday we took you through the transformation of NBA uniforms throughout history, and now we’re sharing this visual transformation of LeBron‘s signature kicks. Starting with the Nike Air Zoom Generation and ending with the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII, take a few minutes and check out this 30-second teaser from the folks over at Nike Basketball.
During Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens‘ visit to Rucker Park yesterday, Ochocinco stayed on the sidelines and coached as planned, but T.O. switched the game plan up and laced up his kicks and got on the blacktop to compete. Compete T.O. did – as in the sequence below where he helped take Jadakiss‘ cookies and caught a decent two-hander in transition. Unfourtantely for him, he was also on the back end of a pretty sick reverse alley-oop going the other way right after. To be realistic, streetballer Antoine “Miles High” Millien didn’t literally dunk on him, but judging by the crowd’s reaction, it was like the Jets or Giants just won the Super Bowl.
While performing at the Power106 Powerhouse concert in Anaheim, Drake thought it would be fitting to bring out a champion. While Kobe didn’t spend nearly as long on stage as LeBron did in Cleveland, it’s nice to see that he came out. I guess Drake will be bringing out your favorite local hoop star to a concert near you.
